Cuppa or cocktail? Now you don’t have to choose.
Yes, all our beverage related dreams are becoming a reality, thanks to alcohol tea bombs.
In a concept that has us thinking “WHY DIDN’T WE THINK OF COMBINING TWO #MUMLIFE NECESSITIES?”, the fancy schmancy blends pair tasty tea flavours with mixers like gin and whisky. Because why use water in your boozy tea when you can use wine?
Available in six different flavours (with names like “The Don Draper’ and “Don’t Apple-ogise”) the boozy teas are a new take on your classic cocktail (and can be carried in your KeepCup #winning).
We can think of a WHOLE bunch of times we’ve needed these little boozy tea love bombs in our lives.
1. When it’s a freezing cold afternoon.
As the mercury drops, you can be found standing on the side of a soccer pitch, wondering if you may lose your fingers to hypothermia. BAM, get a cinnamon, star anise, clove and orange peel Don Draper in yo’ mug and add a splash of red wine. Hypothermia? What hypothermia?
2. It’s 5pm and you have three small humans attached to your body
You are exhausted and in need of a hot drink. And a strong drink. Why choose? BAM pour yourself a Citrus Paradisi and let the pink grapefruit, rosemary, peppercorns and elderflower transport you up and away from the whinging. A splash of gin or prosecco should help as well.
3. You haven’t had enough fruit this week
Fruit is ALWAYS a good idea, but leave the actual fruit cups to the kids and brew up an adult-only cup of Don’t Apple-ogise for yourself. With all that apple-scented deliciousness, you won’t mind so much when the kids drop their own half eaten apples back in the fruit bowl.
4. It’s ANY night and the kids are FINALLY asleep
You know what it’s like. It’s been a hard day, the kids are actually sleeping and you really, really, really want a cup of tea. One that you can drink without zapping it a zillion times in the microwave to heat it back up, But you also really, really, really want wine. Now you can have both in one cup. Hooray.
